I didn’t join Saudi Pro League for the money I earn, a £2.5m per week salary — Former PSG star, Neymar.

Former Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar has denied reports circulating in the media that he joined the Saudi Pro League because of money.

It would be recalled that Neymar joined Al Hilal on a 2-year deal and will be earning £129.4 million per year, an average of £2.5m per week salary.

With a good number of years ahead of him to play, Neymar has been accused of leaving Europe because of the eye-watering cash he has been offered in Saudi.

However, while addressing the press the 31-year-old Brazilian star said that rather than money, his move to the Middle East was motivated by his desire to ‘be a global player’.

“I have achieved a lot in Europe & enjoyed special times but I have always wanted to be a global player & test myself with new challenges & opportunities in new places. I want to write new sporting history, and the Saudi Pro League has tremendous energy & quality players at the moment,” he said.

So u think players that leave South America , Asia and Africa to play in Europe is not because of the money ?? During peles time , players in South America dint gn tk Europe to play , until Europe started dishing out cash ...

Saudi Arabia always had money, Saudi Arabia always lured players to come play in their league , but top players always declined to play there... only Ighalo , Talisca and Ahmed musa were the former European players that played there and they are all D list players .... If Ronaldo did not accept their offer, that league will still remain the same ... players saw Ronaldo play there and they all were like if he cam play there, then I too cam play there .... infact ,top European players are the ones making demands to play there.... salah and modric are next... say the truth for once ... if Messi as the one that joined and not Ronaldo, and these crop of top players followed , u minions will start to scream Messi Messi the goat... give honor to who honor is due .... what is happening in Saudi has never happened b4... China only signed c list starts apart from Eto Drogba and Tevez ...the rest were just C and D list ... Qatar tried with iniesta and xavi, it still dint work... USA also tried it by signing Beckham, no one followed, then after Beckham left, they signed Henry, no one still followed, they now signed Ibrahimovic after Henry, no one still followed...now they have signed Messi, but no one is still interested... Saudi signs Ronaldo, and Boom ...most top talents start to flood there
